Recognising and rewarding excellence in our team is important to us. That’s why we have recently launched a new Value Award programme at Ormiston Hospital. We have four values that we aim to live by every day:
- Passion in our people
- Courage to change
- Caring with empathy
- Excellence in what we do
We asked colleagues to nominate a teammate for bringing one our values to life and were asked to provide examples of how this individual embodies that value. The response for our first quarter of awards was amazing – we receive a huge 67 colleague nominations, covering almost every department across the hospital.
From these nomination, four very deserving winners were selected! Join us in celebrating and congratulating Pravina, Michelle, Rachelle and Vinnie!
|Winner – Michelle Baigent
Michelle has been described as ‘the most passionate, organised and creative educator imaginable!’. She strives to deliver excellent education outcomes for our team and consistently finds new ways to engage with colleagues to ensure education is both fun and interesting.
|Winner – Rachelle Wilson
Rachelle has gone above and beyond whilst on secondment in a different role at Ormiston Hospital. She has faced multiple challenges but has met these head-on with kindness, compassion and strength. Her ability to keep delivering – all with a smile on her face – has been described as ‘quite remarkable to witness’.
|Winner – Vinnie Neva
Vinnie is consistently a high-performer and is often recognised in patient feedback for his care, attention and rapport with people who visit our hospital. He always puts patient safety and comfort first and is very good at keeping whanau included in a patient’s stay.
|Winner – Pravina Chand
Pravina has only been with our team for 7 months but she’s already making a significant impact. She’s well-known for providing support, guidance and coaching to her nursing colleagues to ensure the very best patient care is delivered. She’s a natural leader, effective communicator and an excellent patient advocate.
